We celebrate the new year (four weeks late) by previewing 2009's most (and least) anticipated releases. Plus, we tell you why you need to play the Community Games gem CarneyVale Showtime, and is Midnight Club Los Angeles worth a second look? Don't forget to stay after the show for a little something we call "GameCritics Unleashed."

Tim Spaeth

Cleveland native Tim Spaeth grew up in a happy household – a household with a father whose major client happened to be an Atari games distributor. This led directly to Tim's first nickname: "The kid who got Atari games before anyone else." Indeed, he knew Pac-Man and E.T. were colossal bombs weeks before the rest of the world, and the resulting celebrity brought him great pleasure.

Through the years every aspect of Tim's life has been touched by gaming. He mastered typing thanks to Space Quest, honed his poker skills on The Sierra Network, and learned to hate after a particularly traumatic game of Tecmo Super Bowl.

Today, Tim lives in Chicago with his three kids and strives to find that perfect balance between family, career, and Warcraft. He enjoys broadcasting, martial arts, rock and roll, growing and shaving his beard, singing show tunes to the homeless, and losing at Mario Kart to his lovely, talented, and amazing girlfriend.

In late 2008, Tim became the producer and host of the GameCritics.com Podcast, and he's thrilled to be bringing GameCritics' unique editorial voice to a brand new medium.

[quote=Dale Weir]I’m not saying you should stop the review/discussion pieces–I really liked Mike’s Need for Speed segment–but GameCritics Unleashed had more energy and wit than the last few podcasts combined.

More GameCritics unleashed please![/quote] Agreed. The team recongized something right took place in the outtakes which is why we published it. That’s not to say that will be model, but the energy level and candidness is something we hope we can bring to podcast in general.

You can usually tell how useless a comment is going to be by how creatively the poster tries to lay it out. Hell, more time and thought is obviously put into planning how to do that than actual worthwhile criticism or feedback. Anyways, I have to say that this was a great podcast… in the final few minutes. πŸ˜€ In that unscripted back and forth, I learned more about your stances on the Wii, opinions on games of 2009 and the Wii (yeah I know I wrote it twice). I’m not saying you should stop the review/discussion pieces–I really liked… Read more »
